There are some bright fish in the fall run at Vernita. Rick Graybill holds up one that took his cured eggs back trolled behind a jet diver.
Here you will find current information on fishing in Central Washington State.

I grew up in Central Washington and began writing about the outdoors in the mid 70s. I began broadcasting report on outdoor recreation on KOZI Radio in Lake Chelan in 1991. My reports are now carried on several radio stations and many newspapers in Washington.
